"Stay Home, Stay Safe"

In response to the CORONA-19 virus, Rose City Cemetery & Funeral Home offices are closed, except by appointment. Cremations and burials will continue as scheduled, with only cemetery staff present. Families are welcome to visit the grave site after the burial is complete. Phones are being answered as usual (503-281-3821) and the cemetery grounds and outdoor mausoleum are open normal hours during this time. 
We are working hard to continue providing excellent service with as little disruption as possible. Thanks to all of you who have been so flexible already.

Uncle John was a very special person in my life....a passionate life long learner with a quick wit...at a very young age he gave me a thesaurus as a gift with a note to learn a new word each day....he raced me around the block, took me to play basketball, clamming at the beach....he active in the church, family, education and business. Uncle John would add energy, smiles (and a few ideas!) to every conversation....he fought cancer with faith - never complained and always believed....I will never forget my Uncle John....may your memory be eternal.....I know you are resting in heaven.....!
